DALSTON is conquering one of the world’s great exhibition spaces. Artists and displays are being invited to star in the monthly Friday Late at the Victoria and Albert Museum, on 28 June 2013.

One of the acts at South Kensington will be Lorenzo Vitturi with his exhibition of what he calls photo-sculptures. They have been showing in Ridley Road Market, as Loving Dalston reported, and at the Fishbar gallery, 76 Dalston Lane E8 1NG.
